Product Description

You’re invited on a life-changing journey over high mountains and through desert valleys into the most sacred places on earth. Your guides have been hand-picked as some of the most intelligent and insightful minds in the Church. They have pored over 4,000 years of ancient documents and maps in their original languages, analyzed each word and nuance and clue, and then visited and explored the actual sites in solitary seclusion.

Come sit by the fire light as they tell you stories of buildings covered in gold, of animal sacrifice, of heavenly visitors, and of heart-breaking desecration and destruction. Here you will find greater inspiration and meaning and revelation for your own worship experiences. Come bask in the light and glory of the temple, that holy space where heaven meets earth.
